5:00 pm
state it's unfortunate that the city attorney representative deputy attorney has been litigating those issues for 10 years. the u.s. supreme court decision vs. abrams in 2005 if you were to deny a permit for at at today and if at&t were to file a lawsuit and a win at&t is prohibited from getting attorney's fees or monetary damages. by contrast if you file a law enforcement and the planning code the inmrablt of the article 7 in violation that takes place if you approve it if we prevail
5:01 pm
we will be able to obtain attorney fees from the city. so you're going to - let's talk money. if at&t you deny a permit and at&t goes to court and if they win they get nothing from the city if the resident go to court they get the taxpayers' money on something that should never have happened because the department and d b i were doing their jobs. this is a soft story building. it's about safety of the people in the building. it needs a service upgrade that's the bottom line here. i'm on the ravaged mr. blackman says he's got a building permit to put it in the ground floor
5:02 pm
and that's supposed to be the final approval of the application and their signing open o off on 0 permit? i've handed you appellants exhibit no. 10 which is the first application for a digital system. the next is the lower box on the lower left hand coroner. they installed the ostend was at pat. not a single word from mr. blackman why they didn't explore the distributed system on light poles and its not the burden of
5:03 pm
the city planning it's at&t. in the negligent sixth court of appeals decision the burden is on at&t to discuss all alternatives to the proposed site and explain why it is not feasible. at&t failed to do that. the city must then point out alternatives and give at&t an opportunity to respond and anyone of you may do that by a simple interrogation. and while members of this community are under no legal obligation to tell at&t where they can put their antennas but i'm sure which of us would like
5:04 pm
to do so >> colleagues any final questions inform the parties. at this point this matter is in the hands of the board. colleagues >> supervisor farrell. >> thank you, president chiu i want to thank all the members of the public to district 1 and 2 as closest to the site it's technically in district 2. i want to thank the planning department. you know, over the past few weeks i've received calls for or against this site. the comments to echo the jazz comments those are about the fears of the wireless facilities
5:05 pm
and not necessarily the fear we've heard today. i want to be very clear i would never allow an installation of a wireless system in my district if i thought for a minute there was a true safety issue or damage the welfare of folks in my district. my office has met with the planning departments and other and you read all the materials and obviously i wanted to come in today and listen to the discussion. there are other systems like this in california. in terms of the fears that were discussed i've spoken with the fire prevention inspection and they've not noted an incident
5:06 pm
including back up batteries. the fire department conducts inspectors as was mentioned on a routine base. i've been consistent with the appeals. first is the cad. and i quote the discussion is whether to possible have an impact on the environment. with all due respect i think this is a note an argument that's reasonable at all. the service issues are covered under d b i. i know that d b i has to continue to issue the permits with the service issues.
5:07 pm
and they have to have construction maps and i don't think it's relevant to our sequa discussion at all. a lot of the comment were focused on flooding issues. we have conflicting opinions from those who do the work at the building and some of the neighbors who talked about the flooding. first of all, this prior flooding happened in 2006. and let's be clear there were corrective actions taken. there's not at the same set of circumstances whether it was 18 inches or one half inches and at&t will raise it up to 18 inches and we'll hold you to it
5:08 pm
if this gets approved. but the characterization that this area is a massive flood zone is somewhat cease. you, you know, we have a lot of wet seasons here in san francisco but this is not unusual compared san francisco. in the not some extraordinary circumstances so have the board of supervisors overturn this due to flooding. yes, it could happen but it could happen anywhere in san francisco. we might as well have everything raised up if we're going to worry about that in every single neighborhood. so in my opinion the flooding issue while i appreciate the
5:09 pm
concerned from my opinion bans the people and the experts as well i don't think that flooding is a concern here especially from the improvements in 2007. and at&t is going to be raising the heights of the batteries. the second part is the c u whether it's necessary or capable with the neighborhood and community. contrary to other debates we've had on wierlsz antennas there's no debate on how necessary it is in the coverage of the area. i'm driving with my children all the time and the report says why we need additional coverage. but we're talking about c u here we know that cell phone uses but
5:10 pm
data capacity use is swavrm our system and the cell phones is going to make it worse. so lastly in terms of the design it's still being worked out. i've look at the designs and i'm not a architectureal consultant but i think this is one of the circumstances if you oops this project you'll oops everything about it. but at the same time we have a requirement to look at the circumstances. there maybe other comments by first with the sequa i'm going
